Minister of State for Environment Affairs has agreed with the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to implement several future projects with the goal of enhancing school students’ engagement by improving sanitation and environmental conditions.
During a meeting on Thursday, Minister Nazira Serkis and UNICEF Resident Representative Hanaa Singer stressed the particular need for involving people living in makeshift centers in the civil environmental work.
The main goal, they agreed, is an all-inclusive approach to participation to protect the environment while rationalizing consumption of resources.
Minister Sarkis noted that future cooperation with the UN organization would include a 2015-2016 campaign to raise awareness among children and adolescents in the field of water safety.
The campaign, she said, will be carried out within the guidelines of the Response Plan signed between the government and the UN for 2015.
